Raising Healthy Eaters for Life
CSNN workshop for students and practitioners
In the field of holistic nutrition we have all the tools and information we need on how to truly live a wildly healthy life. But what about how to raise healthy eaters? Or how to empower parents to make change? Sometimes the knowledge we learn in the classroom isn't enough. Because out there in the world, people are bombarded with messages that are conflicting: be healthy, but be busy, eat this packaged food to save time, don't worry you ate that too and you're ok.
This workshop is backed with information, practical tools and strategies for holistic nutrition practitioners to help empower families who are struggling with a healthy eating, picky eaters and busy parents short on time.

- impactful ways to connect with parents and how to interview their children
- knowing the right questions to ask both parents and children
- how to inspire families to create real change
- skills and strategies for busy and working parents
- how to help children get on board with a plan of action
We will also cover 3 real case studies to dissect and explore potential outcomes.
You will walk away with:

- discover how to find, develop and adjust recipes to fit busy families
- kid friendly, tried and tested recipes

Before Amanda entered the world of holistic nutrition she was a child and youth counselor in the education system working with at-risk youth and families. Early on she saw a correlation between the junk food kids were eating and their behaviour. Back then Amanda knew food was deeply impacting children's development, however she did not have the training or knowledge to back up her theory. Fast forward 10 years, Amanda is actively advocating on the impacts of junk and sugar filled foods on our children's health and development. She works to empower parents to first make health changes with themselves so they can a role model of health for their children.
